What Does Science ATL Do?
Our flagship initiative, the Atlanta Science Festival presented by Delta Air Lines, has brought engaging informal science learning experiences to more than 200,000 people in the metro region. Six years of Festival events have inspired many Atlanta youth and adults to see that science is present all around and can be for everyone, not just those with white coats in labs. Our expanded organization, Science ATL, continues to produce the annual Atlanta Science Festival and extend its momentum to develop and collaborate on new and accessible year-round events, to broaden and strengthen partnerships across educational, cultural and industry sectors, and to inspire and prepare the next generation of STEM leaders. Science ATL includes The Science Scene public events calendar, the Chief Science Officers leadership program for middle and high school students, a science communication fellowship, and additional public science events and learning opportunities throughout the year, such as the 5K Race Through Space.
